From the President’s pen…

Our first gig for the year was inspirational!
Judith Nijland - vocals & Pieter Althuis on bass; (both out here from Holland)
reuniting with Marnix van Bruggen on keyboard
and Max Sportelli on drums...
hit the 78 jazz-lovers present with a great variety of excellent jazz.
John Park thought it was a very European experience
and with Abba tunes re-worked into jazz tracks along with plenty of standards
and some originals, it certainly was!

Judith is a vibrant & engaging personality and I loved seeing the muso’s enjoying themselves as well.

Next month’s gig will be on the week prior to Easter – that’s FRI MARCH 23rd.
We’ll have a few well-known players – Peter Uppman on trumpet
Gordon Matheson on guitar
Mark Nahuysen on rhythm guitar
John Conley on Bass & Rodney Ford on drums (both from Galapagos Duck).
Nicole Parker Brown is a delightful & accomplished jazz vocalist.
I heard at Broadbeach Jazz Festival a couple of years ago & was very impressed!

APRIL 27 will see us celebrating our 14th birthday
with the popular Kitty Kats & their big band & wonderful sense of fun, so please don’t miss it either…
Look forward to seeing you all next month – Chrissy Hirst
